Hi gford. Yikes! That sounds very inconvenient. I only found one similar reference on the web about this type of problem and someone suggested this could happen if the rear brake shoes were installed backwards, but that seems like a long shot to me. I couldn't find any recalls related to this so I'm going to have to refer you to your local Toyota dealer. You need professional help on this one. Good luck!
